Sinlahekin Quality Deer

Drew the tag after 20 years and just wanted to hear about any past experience anyone has had and what to expect. Any pictures or stories or suggestions would be appreciated.

My sons buddy chased an absolute monster of a buck around in there for 6 days, caught sight of him 3 different times and could not close the deal, I seen a picture of it taken through a scope, letís just say Iím not doing him justice by saying he was an ďabsolute monsterĒ, he was BIGGER! :chuckle: You will do fine, I donít know the unit well but know people who do, thereís some nice bucks in there. If youíve been putting in for it 20 years you probably have it figured out, good luck.

The mule deer herd has been hammered in there but nonetheless it should be a great tag congrats  :tup:  the whitetail herd is doing fantastic though so you could put your sights on a whitey

Thanks, I figured it was pretty much a migratory mule deer hunt but I'd be happy with a great whitetail too.

That's not really what I wanted to hear. Are you talking about the early season or the late season?

Iím sure heís referring to the late archery hunt. Your tag is the best part of the season so donít be worried your going to see bucks just not as many

Anyone have a suggestion on a good place to stay or should I just plan on the wall tent?

I always thought that it would be part of the experience to wall tent it in the late season and hunt.

Those northern unit have taken a beating over the last few years with wildfires and high success rates during general season. Plan in having the season off and spending long hours glassing and hiking. Thereís still a few good bucks but nothing like years past.

Sister had the mule deer tag years ago, and my dad the whitetail tag a year or two before that.. Fun unit, especially with some snow. Sister ended up with a 160ish buck up the Toats Coulee drainage. We stayed at Liar's cove in one of their little cabins one trip, and hauled the trailer over the second. I'd camp in the valley if it were me, much closer to where we spent most of our time. Good luck!
